Children sing a blessed song in the Sunday school 'Be careful little eyes what you see..there's a Father up above, Who is looking down ..."
It's so good to sing this song, however with a realization that the eyes of the Father are watching us, watching every thing we do & every thought we think
" You are great in counsel and mighty in work, for Your eyes are open to all the ways of the sons of men, to give everyone according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings." Jeremiah 32 : 19 (NKJV)
I have often seen people praying to their gods kept in a glass case (idol worship), they open the case in the morning, offer prayers and close it for the rest of the day as if telling 'Good morning' to their god and closing on him for the rest of the day, they move around doing all they please, do every wrong as if there is none to watch.
God cannot be contained in anything and is present everywhere, with His eyes upon us, He watches us every time.
We cannot hide ourselves from God in a remote Island or in a dark closed room, He is everywhere and sees us.
David has correctly narrated this in his beautiful Psalm...
"Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,”
Even the night shall be light about me;
Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You,
But the night shines as the day;
The darkness and the light are both alike to You."
Psalm 139 :7-12 (NKJV)
For those who love the Lord, the fact that He watches over us is a blessing, for them who desire to continue in sin, God's watching eyes are unwelcome.
There are many in the world who do crimes and heinous acts thinking that no one is watching, however God is and He is going to reward each one accordingly.
Let's always be assured that God is watching over us, let's always be aware that God is watching over us, this blessed fact will keep us from fear and from sin.
May God give us a heart to love His presence and may we find peace, love and protection in those watching Eyes...
